Its success made it a franchise and soon, Warner Bros. and the Wachowskis decided on making two sequels back-to-back and to keep up the hype, released them both in the same year. Soon, in early 2003, 'The Matrix' Reloaded became pretty big and grew even bigger at the financial level grossing $742.1M worldwide. However, the Matrix Revolution had a bad ending and was disappointing with the lowest-grossing entry, but it did not change anything about riping the stories for taking the franchise further, as Warner Bros. in no way wants to keep fans away from it. Therefore, here is everything we know.
The internet exploded when this news surfaced, and since then, fans are dying to know as to how long they will have to wait to finally see 'The Matrix' on the big screen. There hasn't been any confirmed date announced yet, but most likely, 'The Matrix 4' is set to begin its production in 2020, therefore, we can hope to see the film sometime in late 2021 at the very earliest. The movie will be produced by Warner Bros. Pictures in collaboration with Village Roadshow Pictures who will produce and distribute the film globally. Toby Emmerich, who is Warner Bros, Picture Group chairman announced, “We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana. Lana is a true visionary—a singular and original creative filmmaker—and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in ‘The Matrix’ universe.”

The John Wick star has confirmed to come back for his role as The One in the fourth film. His character Neo, won millions of heart as he succumbed from wounds to reboot The Matrix and was taken away by the Machines at the conclusion of The Matrix Revolutions. Along with Keanu, Carrie-Anner Moss is also going to return for her role as Trinity, and of course, fans are elated. She will return as the beloved of Neo and a fighter who died in her mission to make sure that he survives in the conclusion of The Matrix Revolutions. There are rumors about a younger version of Morpheus that might get featured instead of a return for actor Laurence Fishburne.
The news has just arrived about 'The Matrix' coming back for the fourth time. Therefore, it would be pretty soon to expect a storyline to come this early. However, when asked about the new film and what it is going to be about, Lana said, “Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”
